Pinot from paradise

Domain Road Paradise Pinot Noir 2014, Central Otago, NZD $78

Pure, ethereal pinot noir with violet, cherry, mineral, wet stone, liquorice, spice and anise flavours supported by subtle oak. A very appealing wine in a supremely elegant rather than blockbuster style that still shows surprising power. (Screwcap)
